Glassy perceptions

Your minds creation is not the worlds reality,

it doesn’t have to be your prison

There is beauty to behold,

pain can be overridden

Don’t let your glassy perceptions dwarf the wonders of the world

Live outside of your head;

wander through the shores of other minds;

travel to the galaxy of other souls

Then bring yourself home

Be more than your mind –    then your thoughts

See more, see further

Be mindful of the beauty around you

not just within you

That is how you survive


I’ve recently started practicing mindfulness and it lead me to write this poem. As a reminder to myself not to get caught up in my own thoughts.
